Dating from the mid 1800s Devonport is one of Auckland’s most historically authentic villages. It’s a place where time slows down, where boutique shops fill the spaces of Victorian-era buildings, and dining is always a relaxed and enjoyable experience. With some of the best beaches in the city, the golden sands and calm blue waters are right on our doorsteps. We welcome you to our piece of paradise.
Glow@Artweek is a major annual Artweek event hosted in Devonport. Unitec's 2nd year School of Architecture students are challenged to put their designs to the test and construct architectural light pavilions for the event to a zero waste, zero budget brief.
Glow@Artweek, which takes place over two nights in October, draws thousands of interested Aucklanders and visitors to Devonport in the dark to admire, be inspired and experience this fantastic art experience.
In 2018 the sustainability theme was further extended with the support of VECTOR who participated in the event by charging every single installation using their latest in renewable energy technology.
With the use of two Nissan Leaf electric vehicles and a V2H unit, energy was converted from the cars to power up every installation.
The next GLOW@Artweek is taking place 18 & 19 October 2019 and the event is kicked off with our famous Friday after 5 street party - so get ready to have fun with us.
